    Condor Heavy Duty Kukri (with box, used)

    I have a weakness for kukris, cant help myself, searching for the perfect one, this one comes close but is not it for me, many Youtube video reviews of this bad boy but the specs are this:German 7mm thick 1075 carbon steel made in El Salvador, partially coated to protect from rust. Convex grind for strength. total length about 15 inches or 38 cm long handle is 5.5 inches or 14 cm and the blade is about 9.5 inches (brochure says 10) or 24 cm. handle is wood on a full tang held in place with three brass pins and a thong tube. Weight is 688 grams or 838 grams with the black heavy duty leather sheath. The sheath is thick leather with an adjustable belt loop, stitched and riveted in place, with nice touches like little pieces of leather glued in to stop the domes rubbing on the blade on the inside. I found the original box and brochure.
    The blade is still sharp but a bit stained from use, the front portion of the spine is rounded so you can grip it and use the blade like a draw knife, whereas the back of the spine has a 90 degree spine for striking a ferro rod or scraping tinder, I have sharpened this a little to make it better with a grinder, works a treat!
    Its a beast of a knife and will easily do the work or a small hatchet and a knife too boot, not quite long enough for a full machete replacement but pretty damn close and it will not bend or snap light a light machete.
    This is the second generation model with the double cuts for the cho and a slightly stouter blade.

    In the shops new I have seen them going for $155 and $149 on special, I just want it to go to a good home as I am not using it so will let it go for $80 which includes shipping by post in NZ.

    Just got my first a few months ago, I can see more joining the collection but can see the appeal of buying them 'in a genuine location' in that makes sense
